At full capacity, ReCommunity Beacon will recover material that will prevent 261,186 metric tons of carbon dioxide-equivalent greenhouse gases (CO2e) from being emitted annually, which is equivalent to removing 47,838 cars from the road each year.  It will also save 122,955 cubic yards of landfill space and avoids a million gallons of wastewater from getting into landfills.

Once the materials arrive at the MRF, ReCommunity automatically sorts them into their various commodities, and bales them for shipment to other companies that convert the materials into new products.  Old newspapers can be converted into paper products and home insulation.  Aluminum cans can be made into appliances and new cans.  Plastics can be recycled into a variety of products such as carpet, clothing, toys, or new plastic bottles.  And glass is sized into synthetic aggregate or color sorted for re-melt into new glass.
